Good pics, bad video. For the price, I can accept that

 

I got this camera a few years ago as I needed something to capture those first pics of my son being born. I was not disappointed - at 49.99 that I paid for it at the time (7.1Mp), it was well worth it.

Clear pics ; Decently portable ; Uses standard AA batteries ; Fast shutter

Low quality video (not HD) ; Somewhat proprietary USB cable ; Bright spots in scenery can cause video wash-out ; Sound cuts out during zooming, presumably so it doesn't record the motorized lens adjustment

Best bang for the buck!

 

Even with it's defaults, this camera is VERY good! I would recommend it to anyone that need a cheap, easy to use and reliable point and shot camera. I've had it for more then a month now and I must have taken over 500 pictures with it.

Cheap ; Easy to use ; Shutter speed adjustable manually ; Image Stabilizer ; Compatible with SDHC SD card (I use a 8GB) ; Custom White Balance ; AA batteries (you just have to buy cheap batteries if your out of juice!)

ISO above 200 isn't recommended (My Minolta has MUCH better quality on 400 and 800 ISO) ; White Balance presets are limited and the Auto mode isn't helpful ; it's not THAT small and compact (due to the AA batteries) ; No setting for LCD brightness

Stay away from this product - it is un-reliable!

 

See above!

It is small and compact... that's about it! Oh and it's blue - I like blue

If you do get a good picture it is hard to figure out the settings on how you got there. The pictures are often fuzzy and out of focus. As well this camera spontaneously stops working periodically. It was a gift so we are stuck with it

Consumer review by:

Cheap Price but just as good as most

 

The camera is a repackaged nikon now under a bestbuy brand. Over at best buy's website people complain about the battery life. If u change the battery type under the menu to the right battery u can go 20+ easily

No carrying case. I guess for this cheap u should have to buy ur own but I still wanted one
